One Quiet Winter Night

Author Comments

Hi everyone. This is my first-ever completed film, made for Newgrounds' Christmas 2008 collection.

It is about a young boy who dreams of journeying in Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve.

This might be a little soft-toned for Newgrounds, but I hope that some of you will appreciate it anyway. It took me about a year of intermittent work.

Some of the scenes are quite dark, so it is best viewed in dim or no light. Oh, and you probably need a fast computer for it to play smoothly...

Happy holidays!



Truly superb work of art. The animation was fairly smooth, the drawing was beautiful, and the overall theme was brilliant. 5/5, 10/10. Keep it up.

It was painted digitally in ArtRage. Search for a topic about "One Quiet Winter Night" on the ArtRage forums, where I explain how I got this particular style with the very versatile ArtRage tools.

For the Ventoche...

Read the damn Author's Comments! Anyways, the story was good and the animation was amazing. Very good for a first submition to Newgrounds.

Sorry about that. Try viewing it at night in a dark room; the colours become a lot more visible.
